iPhone unlocking

Good afternoon!
At the moment I have an iPhone X and I’m looking forward to upgrading towards and Xs, I saw a really good deal from a second hand seller, however the phone is blocked to the o2, right now I am o2 pay monthly costumer, I was wondering if I buy the new phone (blocker to the o2) will I be able to unlock it with my sim card? I tend to travel abroad sometimes so having an unlocked phone is quite important.
Thank you for your help.

Re: iPhone unlocking

Yes you will be able to unlock it with your O2 sim card either using the form or via My O2. Just use the phone for a day so that the IMEI registers on the network and then request the unlock.

Where are you buying the phone if you don't mind me asking?

Re: iPhone unlocking

@Miguel0717 Your phone, and the one you're interested in, should not be locked. Have you tried another network sim in it? If for some reason it is locked, take a look at this guide: https://community.o2.co.uk/t5/How-to-Guides/Unlocking-an-O2-phone-to-use-a-different-SIM-card/ba-p/1...
